European Week of Sport 2018 #TugofWar

What a fantastic week we have had here in St Clare’s! We have been busy this week taking part in different activities for European Week of Sport. To finish off the week today, 6th class took on the teachers in tug of war. The teachers definitely need to work on their strength as 6th class beat them 2-1. Congratulations 6th class!

Well done everyone for participating so well in a superb week of sport!

Eco Friendly Newspaper Bags

Take a look at our Eco friendly bags. We researched gift bags and discovered that the majority of them are made in China. We wanted to reduce the air/land and sea miles used and thereby reduce our carbon footprint by making bags of our own using old newspapers.

Design a Bridge Challenge

Task: Design a bridge

Method:

Using blocks, paper, books and crayons to test we designed bridges to see which ones were stronger and could hold the most amount of crayons. We manipulated our structures to increase their strength by folding the paper used, using double layers of paper, creating arches and structures for extra support.

Conclusion:

The material from which a structure is made is important but you can strengthen a material by changing is shape. Bridge designers often use different shapes for example: arches and triangles. The curve of the arch spreads the load on the bridge and makes it stronger.
